B News – Maine in Fall, A Photographer’s Treasure
T News – The D7100 Experience
The smell of the salt air can’t be missed as you open the car door. The drive south took a little while but it was more than worth it! The drive itself is gorgeous as you drive down the avenues of color dotted by homes and barns done in New England architecture painted all in white. As you make some curves, you take a turn back in time as our history comes to life. It’s easy to miss the sign to Bernard if you’re not looking since you need to make a left on a right hand curve. But once there, your nose will confirm it because first it’s the sea and then the fish that greet your sense of smell.
With 200-400 mounted on the tripod, I head over to a long time favorite subject, well two of them. I first photographed the Dory back in 2001 and have done so ever since. I never miss an opportunity to put this classic in the viewfinder. In the fall after sunset, the light in the sky is a steal blue that reflects in the bay’s flat water producing a great sweep for anything on the water. And there on this table of blue is set a gorgeous white Dory with natural wood finish trim. After a couple of clicks, it’s time to get down to the real reason of our visit, lobster at Thurston’s, the best in the world!
For the past decade, we have ventured to Maine every fall. This great region offers so much to the wandering photographer and has never failed to reward us for exploring it with a camera! The friendly people, the history, fall color, the coast and Americana combine to create a photographers paradise (and I’ve not even started in on the food). The expanse of the region can keep you shooting for a full month without ever repeating a subject. And yet, I can’t begin to cover it all that is Maine or what to photograph in this piece. What I have to share with you are those places that I continually go back to time and again for some amazing photographic opportunities. So put on your slickers, grab a flash card and come with me on a marvelous Maine fall trip!

B News – One Big Hole! The Grand Canyon
It might just be a hole in the ground, but what a hole! The Grand Canyon is a gorgeous location. One that we have visited for decades and in fact, I have written about previously. In this edition of the BT Journal, we’ll cover what might seem obvious, the various overview to shoot the Canyon, but we’ll cover a whole lot more. Like what to do on bald sky days, time lapse photography, working the mood and times of the year plus a whole lot more. So come, join us while we explore the biggest and most gorgeous hole on the planet!
Coming this Spring!
